Clear, consistent ruby red in color. Aromas of cherry and raspberry on the nose followed by bright fruit on the palate backed with moderately crisp acidity and tannins. Some cedar and a hint of smokiness. Moderately persistent finish. Medium bodied. Great value Chianti Classico.

Black grape skin and red chery. Typical chianti profile, well integrated. High but soft tannins. Straightforward but very good.

Not for drinking! Using this wine for cooking. I am making Brasato di Maiale Nero (braised pork in the "black rooster") for tonight's dinner!

Nice full smell, floral and a bit metallic. Thin. Smooth finish. No long aftertaste.
